    How much to add 2nd phone to your plan?

    Is this even possible? I rmb before there was an option for it but I just looked on the website and wasn't able to find it.

    I was thinking of just adding a second phone to my plan, instead of going prepaid for a second phone that will be used several weeks of the year. Can I add and remove that second phone at will?

    Or would it just be easier to keep them separate and do prepaid?

    Yeah, Telus used to have Share plans which allowed you to pool minutes as long as each phone had a Share plan of at least $20. They got rid of that, but now all their Clear Choice plans allow unlimited nationwide minutes between handsets on the same billing account.

    More info on the removal of Share plans: http://howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1642287

    What is your intention with this? Is someone else going to be using the second handset, or do you want a second one for your own uses occasionally?

    To activate another phone on your existing account you just login at:
    www.telusmobility.com/youraccount
    after logging in on the first screen in the bottom right side is a link that says "Activate another phone or internet key"
    Click on this and follow along.

    There is an activation fee charged of $10 to do this online or $35 if you phone in. You may get the activation fee waived when phoning in if you agree to a contract. They want you to give them 30 days notice to cancel. I don't think their system enforces the 30 day rule though because sometimes reps will do it right away or at the end of your current billing cycle instead of on 30 days notice but plan ahead. I believe activating on prepaid is also $10.

    For low usage prepaid is better, it includes call display and voicemail too.

    We think everyone should be able to afford a wireless phone. That's why we were the first wireless company in North America to offer pay-by-the-second airtime, and why we don't charge an activation fee. NO scary contract to sign. Immediate national coverage. And a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Yes, it's finally time to get a wireless phone.

    Did you like most people think that activating a second line on a Family plan or share plan is 2 for 1, FYI its not you just paid twice as much and could call each other on share or family plan on your account for free, now what they did is all regular plan incld that feature so if you add a second line you would get unlimited nationwide calling and its not 2 for 1 and has never been that way.
    My Month to Month Bell Plan on HSPA/EVDO

    I don't think that's what he thought. One of the examples I can think of right now that relates to what I think he meant is with some of Bell's old plans. If you had certain plans, you could add another line for ~$15.

    On Voice plans, if you activate just one, it has to be $25+. If you activate 2 or more, it can be $20. Like if you already had Voice + Data 60, and wanted to add another line, the minimum would be $20, not $25 as if you were activating one line on a new account.

    I hope that made sense.

    i was hoping i can just activate a second phone on my (non-share, non-clear choice) plan and lend that phone to my visitors from out of town. instead of buying prepaid credits.

    but it sounds like prepaid is the way to go.
